Here's a scan of a couple of my Philly Gum Quentin Postcards:

Too funny. Know what this topic makes me think of instantly? Did you ever notice that in those old Gold Key comics in nearly every issue you can find at least one panel or more where Barnabas is sprinting like a mad man? Off the top of my head, I think it's issue #11 where he is off and running on nearly every other freaking page. It's like he's in some demented vampire 50 yard dash. I love them though, but now I find myself looking forward to finding the "running panel" as I read through them. Hells bells, you could just about turn it into one of those drinking games. Take a shot for every panel where Barnabas is booking it across a field or a cemetery or just tearing ass back to his coffin before sunrise.

I absolutely LOVE any sort of vintage DARK SHADOWS memorabilia.
I had quite a bit of it when I was a wee lad of about 8 - 10 years old back in the late '60s - early '70s. A whole stack of the Gold Key comics, some gum cards, a paperback or two, the Barnabas model kit & for a while there, every week or so I'd get a new DARK SHADOWS writing/drawing pad. You know, the sort of Etch-A-Sketch-type ones with the plastic red pen thingy & the plastic film that you peeled back to start a new picture.
I went through SO many of those things! And our local little corner store had a seemingly inexhaustible supply of them.
Of course, NOW those things are worth a mint!
They were so cheap & flimsy that not all that many survived. Much less in decent condition.

None of my SHADOWS collection survived my youth however.
So now, some 40 years later, I try to piece together what I can. But, because my funds are so stretched out with a little going toward my comic book collection, a little toward my vintage genre paperback collection, some to my monster mag collection & yet a wee bit more to my DVD & Blu-Ray collection, I haven't gotten as much as I'd like to.
 But, I did get one of my favorite issues/covers of the Gold Keys  from my childhood , that being #6.  And, even though they're not vintage, I have all the issues published thus far of the current Dynamite Comics SHADOWS title. Which is quite good.
Also, even though I had well over a hundred issues of the original FAMOUS MONSTERS as a kid, I never had ANY of those classic DARK SHADOWS cover issues. Well, I do now. Every single one of them in fact. Plus, all the issues of CASTLE OF FRANKENSTEIN, Marvel's MONSTERS OF THE MOVIES & assorted other titles with SHADOWS' Barnabas on their covers.

I do remember that! It's pretty funny, considering he never, ever ran in the show or HoDS. He could hardly walk ten feet on the show without bumping into a wall or a door or a piece of furniture, space was so tight on those sets.

If I had a scanner I would scan a bunch of em to share. They are a riot.

That's what I hated about Gold Key comics as a kid though. Just because the cover artwork was gorgeous did not mean the interior art was up to the same quality.

 :(

Oh totally. That goes for Charlton titles too, really any of the "off brand" comics from that period had sub standard art. They were frequently very workman-like or generic if you will. I'm sure you get my meaning.

What's the good of being a vampire if you can't outrun a guy that hasn't even transformed into a werewolf yet? HE'S JUST A GUY, at that point! And, couldn't he turn into a bat and follow him?
Okay, I'll shut up now....

Trying to apply logic to these kooky comix is futile. Just laugh and enjoy. ;)

By the way, if anybody liked the 1990's revival, I was able to pick up the complete series in a 3 disc set for less than $10 at Walmart this morning.
What ever happened to my Transylvania Twist?
